FIJI MF FAME in MultiFuels, SA5200-0

Determination of the fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) content with Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy – Rapid screening method”.

The patented FIJI has been developed to offer you a rapid and easy check on Parts Per Million (ppm or mg/kg) levels of FAME in aviation fuel, distillates, residuals, and gasoline.

FIJI uniquely utilizes FTIR (Fourier Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy) technology and a patented sample preparation system which allows FAME detection accuracy down to the 10 mg/kg level.

You can use the FIJI as a field or lab-based screening tool to give a quick indication of possible FAME contamination that may then necessitate further investigations. You can use the instrument to prevent expensive testing and avoid costly delays of fuel release.

Methods: ASTM D1665, ASTM D7797, ASTM D7963, DEF STAN 91-091, IP 583, ISO 8217

Ease of use:
The instrument is extremely simple to use and fully automatic so you do not require specialist operator training
The system is self-cleaning so you do not require solvents. After each test you simply replace the cartridge and the instrument is immediately ready for the next sample
Enhanced test throughput:
Tests require less than 50 ml of sample and typically take under 20 minutes
Results are presented in mg/kg units together with an optional traffic light system for flagging FAME contamination levels of the fuel
By comparison current analytical tests can take many hours, require complex equipment and demand high skill levels
Precision and accuracy:
Using a unique sample preparation module the sample is pumped at a controlled flow rate though a proprietary disposable cartridge
The sample components are spectrally analysed by the FTIR and a result is displayed in mg/kg and a graphical spectrum is also shown
